“Nice sturdy Oxford. Plan to get most of the other colors in this fabric”
Jonathan in Millersville, PA
“This fabric is tough as nails. It's slightly heavy, but it reminds me of how quality shirts felt in the 1960s. Highly recommended if you liked Gant and Sero when you were young.”

“Heavy. Really, really heavy. Awfully heavy. But a beautiful fabric, and the shirt is beautiful, since it is so well constructed. Also, it launders nicely.”

The blue and white university stripe oxford is as iconic as it gets—kind of preppy and old school, yet forever in style. Whether you’re throwing it back to the golden age of Ivy Style or the ‘#menswear’ movement of the last few years. This classic heavy oxford cloth is the perfect option. The 40/1 x 21/2 construction gives it the right amount of beefiness, and after a few washes it really softens up. The shade of blue is spot on, too. With alternating white and blue yarns used in the stripe, it has a really subtle color variation that we love. You can’t have enough of these sport shirts in your closet. Slightly rumpled yet highly durable, the more you wear it the more personality the shirt will take on. We love the ’60s vibe of our Soft Ivy Button Down Collar on an oxford (just the right amount of collar roll), and we always pair it with a soft front placket and soft one-button cuff. Try a Colorado BD for a more contemporary collar (read: smaller), or a Soft President Cutaway if you're looking for a little extra sprezzatura.
